Electric Yeti Fight

I went to my second viewing of Scott Pilgram with some pals and I tried to get a picture of the electric yeti fight. But I was not successful. The first pic is the guitars generating the beast.

You should probably go see the movie at the theatre on the nice and big screen.

They are all nude!

My good friend Mike Gowan has put his skills to the challenge of remixing the Radiohead song nude. Are you a musical mixing madman? Well give it a shot, download the stems from itunes and upload your completed songs to www.radioheadremix.com.
Just a plane ole music fan? Well go check out all the mixes at www.radioheadremix.com there are already 700 entries as of April 7! Listen to the all and vote on your favorite. Ok, you don’t have to listen to them all. Just listen to my buddy Mike’s and vote for him.
 

Adventure Time is Algebraic!

If you’ve got time (07min & 33sec), then for sure check out Adventure Time! If you’ve only got a few seconds then check this out and try not wanting to watch his cartoon. Rhombus! Forgive me if this is old youtubing to you, I’m only a year behind on this one. 

If you dig it hardcore then you can get a limited edition t-shirt from a series of 12 t-shirts. They’re on number 9 as of April 5.

Website Explosions

Last year I ran across this site that does graphical representations of any website. The graphing takes place live via a java application. You’ll see an explosion of dots that continues to grow while you watch with each dot representing a certain thing:
blue: for links (the A tag)
red: for tables (TABLE, TR and TD tags)
green: for the DIV tag
violet: for images (the IMG tag)
yellow: for forms (FORM, INPUT, TEXTAREA, SELECT and OPTION tags)
orange: for linebreaks and blockquotes (BR, P, and BLOCKQUOTE tags)
black: the HTML tag, the root node
gray: all other tags

There’s a Flickr tag if you’d liked to see more. But I’d suggest going there and typing in one of your favorite websites. I went ahead and did your most favorites below. You can even compare them from 05/07 & 02/08.

As an interesting side note, the program was created by artist Fernando Luis Lara who is a part of the internet based art projects. His is 365 special days, where he paints a painting by request for commision for people who want a special day remembered. Everyday is for sale and he is only doing the day once. www.365specialdays.com

I’d lump the million dollar homepage in with this whole set even though it’s not really art, but the idea is the same.

I should have broken this up into another post, but that would have required me doing more research and eventually coming up with some silly idea where I draw 500 robots or something.
